JoAnn, and I lived across the street from each other when we were growing up and then drove the school bus together. She was a good friend and a loving person. She will be missed.

JoAnn was my sister, my friend, the one I share so many childhood memories with. She was the glue that held the family together. She had one of the most loving and giving hearts, and it just finally gave out. I miss her more today than I did yesterday, but not near as much as I will tomorrow and all the days to come. I am thankful that she left me with a lot of wonderful memories to cherish.

JoAnn was a fun lovely lady and is missed by her friends (David Claiborne, David Adams, Beth French, and Richard Jones) from Chattanooga. When cruising with her and friends, I think she and Diana would have been content staying at port as long as they could dress for dinner.
